Take a look at how you can S-rank any mission in Metal Gear Solid V.
Common sense all of this...
Time is most important, you can go stealth non lethal/lethal, as long as you're fast and do a lot of headshots [1k points each] S ranks are a breeze. You need 130k minimum for S, good luck guys. I already did my fair share o S ranks :) https://scontent.fwaw3-1.fn...
I just need 3 more but I'm already sick of the game it was nothing like I thought it would be. it's good but not great as most pepole are hyping it to be...
Anyone else get S rank while using lethal? I used lethal and got S rank twice. Honestly don't really know the requirements for S rank. =)
Time and/or objective completion, mainly. Combat alerts and kills really don't deduct enough points to make S-rank impossible by killing a bunch of people, or even the whole base. So long you're either fast or thoughrough, at least.
Yup! All you have to do is get 130k points, lethal or not, stealth or not. Game is pretty flexible since it also gives you points for completing the side objectives. Getting S rank in the game is pretty lax, you can even use checkpoints :)
130k actually bzt yeah, it's pretty easy in most of the missions.
They don't count kills against you like they did in Ground Zeroes. I've had that happen too, I'll be playing full stealth but I've got a couple good dmg guns in case things go south...so I'll somehow trigger an alert because my silencer broke and things go horribly wrong but then I ended up with an S and I was so confused. It's all goes to how MGSV is great.
The ranking system is kinda mucked up. It rewards you for speed when being stealthy takes a longer time to plan out your strategy etc.
Not exactly , there are definitive ways with most of those missions to get S while sneaking and not killing a soul . We just can't expect to figure all of those in the first go while figuring out bases , path and patrols , without being extremly lucky , or outright cheating with walkthroughs and youtube . It's stuff we usually should get right after a few tries , and when not distracted by the allure of fultoning elite soldiers , vehicules and secondary and lucrative extra objectives
Exactly. This game actually allows you to do well playing your own way as long as you accomplish your mission fast and well. Nothing else should matter.
Yup! The temptation of fultoning elite soldiers is real. Even in the mist of battle, i'll save some time to fulton those sweet A++ dudes.
Been getting s by not getting caught at all and by using stun gun or sleep sleep
Speed and head shots are preferable ,.. alarm is like -5k
Yeah i done killed everything in my path with getting spotted and got a S rank. Speed is the name of the game. One thing that sucks is not getting to use certain things or you can olny get a A rank or lower.
Easiest way is to get the AR that fires rubber bullets then just rush through the mission. Alarms will lose you around 15,000 points per mission but you get most of that back by staying non-lethal. So from there, just focus on speed. As the speed bonus seems to start at 150,0000. A fast run will often net all the 130,000 required for an S rank, then non-lethal and headshots mediate the points lost from combat alerts. Pure stealth is a good way too, but can't guarantee an S rank that way unless you're fast. Either that or go for no traces. Which is: No alert No kills No reflex No trigger pulled (aim ok) No buddy attacks No vehicle attacks No score altering items (stealth camo, chicken hat, air strikes) No supply requests If you enter a cardboard box, you must now stay in it. Leaving it nulls No Trace bonus and you get all of the 130,000 points required from the stealth bonuses. It's not as hard as it sounds but on some mssions it's almost impossible due to what the objective requires. For instance I don't know how to get no traces when you have to destroy something.
Supply Drops doesn't count negatively against you.... that is Helicopter Support
They don't but they do stop you getting the no traces award. No traces guarantees S rank but you need to play with pretty much no resources. You can't fire any weapons on a traceless run so you wouldn't even need supplies.
Oh ok.. I get you... thanks
Question. Would quiet shooting some rounds count against a trace less run?
Yes, you cannot have any of your buddies attack anything. The idea of traceless is that there are no traces. If a guy gets shot, either by you or anyone else, then there's a trace that there was a disturbance at the base. You can take quiet, but only have her scout. With that said, I am not sure if her bumping into people and stunning them counts as an attack. Sometimes she does that, so if that forgoes the traceless reward then I would not risk taking her.
My question is mainly about the mission tasks rather than the mission rankings.. but then again they go hand in hand for my question.. If I beat a mission and get an S rank and I replay that mission for the extra mission tasks and complete it again but this time with a B or something... will the B overwrite the S I had originally gotten? So if I play a mission and get S rank and then I play the same mission again and get another rank... which one will show up the S rank or the other rank? I hope someone can understand what I'm trying to say.
I can't be sure but I'm fairly certain it keeps your highest scoring run, and under no circumstances will it overwrite that regardless of the objectives you complete.
Wow, I'm actually wondering the same question.
Fortunately, you have nothing to worry about with this. I've already received an S rank all main missions, and they will always keep your highest rank that you have attained for that mission. So, if you got an S rank on a previous mission, but wanted to replay it for fun, gmp/resource farming, etc. and receive a lower rank, it will not overwrite that S rank. The missions tasks are a separate thing. I believe they simply add more points to the overall score, which can help towards getting an S rank, but there are more effective methods.
I really want the raiden outfit but im not going to go back and get all S ranks. No way in hell I'm getting an S on [EXTREME] sahelanthropus.
If it helps, go to PowerPyx, on Youtube. He has very good videos on how to S rank these type of missions. It'll take some time and effort to get the equipment ready, depending on how well you've managed your resources and GMP, but it's worth it.
I S rank every mission and it didn't give me the S rank trophy anyone know why or is this like a glitch or error?
Did you receive the Grand Master Certificate, both Standard and Elite? I've heard there is a glitch, but I haven't been able to really find much about it on whether what causes it, or how many people have been affected.
actually there were more missions i S ranked everything and no other missions came up so i figured that was the last one turned out i had to do specific side ops to unlock more main missions.
Ah, okay. You mean the side ops that are highlighted in yellow? There are 50 total main missions. Good luck.
